The Grammy’s red carpet was lacking in excitement last night. There were plenty of gimmicky costumes and “worst dressed / what were they thinking” looks, but not many show-stopping gowns. Slinky black dresses, sabrina necklines, thigh-high slits and gold hardware accessories ruled the carpet. Here were my favorites:
Adele stunned in Giorgio Armani. The dress was so elegant and flattering, and her hair and makeup were flawless too.
Carrie Underwood looked beautiful (as always) in Gomez-Gracia.
Rihanna sizzled on the red carpet in a sexy Giogio Armani dress with low v-neck and high slit. It was perfectly accessorized with chunky gold jewelry and a clutch, along with pointy ankle strap shoes.
Kate Perry was lovely in blue Elie Saab. Her matching hair along with the dress’ curve-hugging fit, low back and train made a statement.
Model Lily Aldridge (married to Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon) showed off her baby bump in a flowing, floral Gucci gown.
Fergie was the most daring non-costume look of the night in Jean Paul Gaultier. She pulled off the bold choice well, but I wished it was accessorized differently. Also, the color combo was a little Haloween-y, undergarments in the same neon orange or even gold would have been better. Still a beautiful dress, great color and flawless fit.
Taylor Swift wore a pretty Zuhair Murad gown that fit her perfectly, but it looked too old for her between the high neck, boring color and never-ending intricate details. Her slicked back bun and little heart earrings did not help. I wish she would have worn something fresh and young with color, given that she is one of the youngest stars on the carpet.
What did you guys think of the red carpet choices last night? Did you watch the show too? I thought Jennifer Hudson was pretty amazing.
